Question to the Attorney-General on whistleblower protections

My question is for the Attorney-General. The persecution and prosecution of whistleblowers in recent years is a national shame. Today, Griffith University, the Human Rights Law Centre and Transparency International Australia have released a report outlining 12 key steps that Australia must take to strengthen whistleblower protections. Will the Government commit to implementing the report's recommendations in this term of parliament, in particular the establishment of the whistleblower protection authority?
